Looking at the front headlight I do not believe that is an 06. My 06 has a highbeam light there the air intakes are on this bike.

LT trikes will likely always be rare.

1. Only one company (thus far) triking them - Hannigan
2. The more sporting qualities of the LT are eliminated when you trike her
3. The Goldwing - with it's much larger torque - is a better platform for triking (and the associated additional weight)

Positive characteristic of an LT trike? Bye, bye to the stock BMW final drive!!

I have seen the Hannigan LT Trike in person. It sure is a beauty. Dave and his team did a wonderful job, but it probably won't ever sell in any quantity.

#3 above was arguably true for earlier model K LTs in comparison to GL1800s. Since the 2005 models LTs and GLs have approximately the sane HP and torque ratings though the smaller displacement/lighter weight LT does it's thing at higher RPM while sipping less fuel.

As someone who owns both an '06 Wing and an '06 LT, I can tell you that in the real world that couldn't be further from the truth.

I own a Bushtec trailer that I have pulled behind both bikes, and the idea that the LT makes anywhere near the usable torque below 4k is just not true.

If you looked at the actual Torque curves of both bikes (link below) you would see that the Wing makes the 90 pounds of it's 104 pounds feet of torque right off idle, while the LT makes you increase the revs to get 'er going.

That's a lotta' clutch slippin'.

In a straight 1-up, no trailer drag race, the LT and the Wing are about even. The Wing however, could pull tree stumps. They might as well paint it green and gold and put a John Deere logo on it.

As for sipping less fuel, the impact of the Bushtec trailer on the LT's mileage was a larger percentage drop than on the Wing (telling my unscientific mind that the LT had to work harder to pull her). Combine that with the price difference in gas (LT - premium, Wing = Regular), and I would expect that fuel costs per mile traveled would be similar.

I think we have a small failure to communicate. As I noted in my in my earlier post, the LT engine produces it's torque at higher rpms than the GL1800. There's no doubt ain my mind that the big Honda has more low end grunt.

Captain Bob, I have a 2003 K1200LT / Hannigan that I would consider selling.

Have you done your research? Let me see if I can figure out how to attach a picture.

Well I tried but that didn't seem to work. So of you are interested I can email pictures to you. And we can if you want discuss price.

Re: used K1200LT Trike

I would sell my 2003 LT/Hannigan trike for $24,000. My wife has an 03 Goldwing/Hannigan and they are both great but different. The best analogy I can use is that the Wing is like a Caddy and the LT more like a sports car. Another difference is the comments you get. Becuase the LT/Hannigan is relatively rare people tend to remark more about it. Most believe the entire package is made by BMW. In my opinion Hannigan is the best trike available. On the Goldwing site you will read many different opinions but no one discredits a Hannigan.

I also have a Honda VTX 1800R two wheeler that if I could sell it I'd keep the BMW. ( Asking $7,500 for the VTX ). Both bikes are currently in my garage in Durango CO. The batteries are on the workbench connected to a "tender".

Still haven't figured out how to post a picture. I do the browse thing and select a picture but nothing happens. Is there a limit to file size? Any help would be appreciated.

Re: used K1200LT Trike

Yep, there is a size limit! I had to resize my photos before the site would accept it. I use Picasa 2. I experimented until I found a good combination of size and detail. I think it ended up about 200K. Hope this helps.

Beautiful trike. The LT on the right rear fender is a very nice touch.

Are you coming to the MOA rally in Gillette, WY this summer? Several trike riders plan to gather on Saturday morning for a ride to the Devil's Tower.

Re: used K1200LT Trike

Hello Ben,

Hannigan does a very nice job of designing a trike that looks as if it could have come from the BMW factory.

If I can make it to the rally in Gillette I will see you there. Our summer plans are up in the air.

Mac

Re: used K1200LT Trike

Dear Members
I have a bmw k1200lt 2005 bike I am from Cape Town South Africa,we enjoy it very much. due to my husbands health we have to convert to a trike. There is no one in South Africa that can help us with the BMW bike. Looking for a used Hannigan trike kit as due to our exchange rate it makes it in possible to buy a new kit direct from Hannigan.
If there is anyone out there that can help us with advice or any information we will be very gratefull. as we would not like have to give up our bike riding. God Bless. Regards Zelda Van Der Merwe

Re: used K1200LT Trike

Hi, Zelda! You will have trouble finding a "used" trike kit. They are manufactured to order, and, as far as I know, no one ever removes a trike kit once it is installed. Perhaps you could E-mail Hannigan and ask if such a thing exists, perhaps they can help you.

I have an LT trike, and I know what you mean when you say it is sometimes time to give up the 2 wheels!

You may be better off looking for a used trike and consider selling your bike, although you would likely face shipping costs to S. Africa.

I wish I could offer better news, perhaps someone else can on this forum. Whatever you do, do not give up hope! Remember the "Secret"!

All the best, and God Bless right back to you!
